  1. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    when I get a mo I think I'll update the lot on loomstate for future reference.

    thanks for the kind words. I can't find the actual catalogue... which means I can't check if they use the LVC branding in Japan. Anyways, here are some of the others. SOrry, the software has scramled the order but these are the early ones. Note the '702'... I can't remember the actual story but I think this is a mythical 30s pair,

    ... the the TCB pics are one pre-wash, and a couple from what I think was the first major machine wash this weekend.

    We have had the most beautiful series of autumn mornings in London. And the odd one with torrential rain. Today, happily, it's one of the former. The black pooch is our cocker spaniel - an old breed, good at retrieving game, especially woodcock. The other one, my friend's, is a wire haired fox terrier, bred to root out foxes from their lairs I guess.

    Lovely stuff!

    Shockingly, I located the folder. Here are a couple of pages. These are mainly Japan-only models, eg the 502, that was always popular.

    those Japanese 1937 are almost certainly Cone if it's 2006. I have a Japanese catalogue from 2001 or so that I've posted on here before. I can't remember if they badged all their 'own' production as LVC, I thought they did but if so I'm wrong. When I can face trawling thru all my old photobucket pages I'll try and look it out.

    They are Cone. Most of the post 1997-ish Japanese Levi's were, with the exception of some Sanforized versions. Some earlier ones used Kaihara.
  10. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Looks lovely. I liked that jacket so much I hardly wore it. The only time I washed it was to remove the Radiohead 1997 Glastonbury mud before I sent it to you. Hope you have many happy times in it.

    I don't think I know now re years; I did have some documents with the specs that I perhaps didn't even copy. There was quite a lot of secrecy. It's very likely indeed there was a mix, and remember Cone had wide shuttle looms too which would have only produced 'half' the selvage edge. I wonder if some of those jeans are ring/ring as opposed to the ring/OE to which they moved in 83 (without really telling anyone).

    this is great stuff, thanks. I interviewed the guy who helped oversee the patterns for the Scottish jeans from 1983. They were trying to put some sort of overall pattern on countless inconsistent details: for instance, from the immediately previous jeans were all over the place, different shaped pockets in different sizes, or across different factories. He also tended to know which of the factories tended to use particular colour stitching, as that was all over the place too. I love the thought of those different factories with their different aesthetic, especially now you've personalised it with the story of the rock'n'roll, out-there 653 mob.

    Maybe we should move on?
